Gloucestershire is well-known for being one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with both residents and visitors delighting in its natural beauty, warm hospitality and distinct style of architecture. With an enviable ability to draw on the countryside’s natural larder, food and drink in this part of the country are also a treat, so with that in mind, the Good Hotel Guide shares some of the top gastro pubs with rooms in Gloucestershire.
The Royal Oak, Tetbury
This quirky country pub with rooms is a combination of stylish hospitality and welcoming hospitality. The 18th-century inn is filled with quirky features, ranging from a free jukebox to an Art Deco piano, so it’s little surprise that it’s very much the heart and soul of the local community. The style and charm are matched by the quality of the food and drink, ranging from chickpea pancakes with lentil dhal to strawberry patbingsu (a Korean dessert).
The Old Stocks Inn, Stow-on-the-Wold
A beautiful 17th-century coaching inn, The Old Stocks Inn is built of honey-coloured Cotswold stone, while inside it has been lovingly refurbished in rustic chic style. It’s warm and welcoming, cool and classy, serving hearty food, artisan coffees and hand-crafted ales. There are 16 rooms, each individually decorated with plush headboards, comfy sofas and unique contemporary design, while roll top baths and walk in showers add an extra touch of luxury.
The King’s Arms, Badminton
A traditional pub, The King’s Arms is as welcoming whether you’re visiting for a pint or staying the night. Rooms and suites provide modern comfort alongside characterful antiques, making for a romantic place to retreat. There’s also self-catering cottage accommodation where four-legged friends are welcome to join. Food and drink are a feast of British cuisine using seasonal ingredients, from Badminton venison to wood-fired pizzas.
The King’s Head Inn, Bledington
A 16th century inn on the village green of Bledington, The King’s Head Inn is an award-winning pub with rooms. It has 12 bedrooms, each of which are individually decorated with thoughtful details including embroidered cushions and fresh cut flowers. The restaurant offers traditional dining and wholesome, hearty English food ranging from Aberdeen Angus to fish from from Upton Smokery. You can also dine in their pretty Cotswold Courtyard Garden.
The Village Pub, Barnsley
Serving Cotswolds craft ales and West Country ciders, The Village Pub sits opposite the elegant Barnsley House hotel and spa. Part of the hotel’s estate, it provides an informal counterpart to the manor house’s grandiosity. Part of The Calcot Collection, everything is done to perfection, from the Paddock Farm butchers cuts to the seasonal veg from the kitchen garden. Rooms are exquisitely designed, delivering modern comfort with finesse. Think country charm, original beams and roll top baths. Spend your day exploring by foot or bike, playing golf and polo or taking part in cookery courses. It’s family friendly, romantic and achingly beautiful.
